Chelsea were without key personnel for the Anfield clash with Terry, Cech, Hazard and Ramires on the sidelines but were still able to get a result at Anfield after a mistake by Steven Gerrard let in Ba on 45 minutes to score. Brendan Rodgers was critical of the tactics employed by Chelsea who stifled the attacking play of Liverpool from the first whistle which Rodgers described as 'parking two buses' when talking to Sky Sports. Chelsea scored their second towards the end of the game and secured a crucial three points, keeping their title ambitions intact. Liverpool were considered favourites against Chelsea but this most unpredictable and exciting of seasons has thrown another twist which is keeping fans more engaged than ever say DSG.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say: “The season has been unlike any I can remember in the Premier League era with four clubs in contention right until the end with Arsenal, Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool in with a chance of taking the title. Just when you think one team has the title sewn-up they go and lose, so although Man City seem now to be in the driving seat they still need to play Everton and perhaps West Ham could even have a say in the destiny of the Premier League title this season. We have seen a strong and continued spike in interest as the season draws towards an exciting conclusion with so much still to play for.”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes that Manchester City are currently the best team in Manchester and are now favourites to be Premier League champions. “You have to say it’s Man City’s title to lose now with their superior goal difference but it has been one of those seasons where results certainly don’t always follow expectations. You would expect City now to go on and take the title especially as Everton are looking increasingly unlikely to have a chance to take 4th spot in the league.
